CUSTER COUNTY— As Directed Health Measures begin to loosen up across Nebraska, the court system is also slowly beginning to get back to normal.
On Monday, June 1, Cooper Brass, 20 of Broken Bow, made his first appearance on one charge of alleged burglary (class IIA felony). Michael Borders was appointed by Judge Tami Schendt to represent Brass who will be back in court on June 15 for a preliminary hearing. If convicted of the one charge, Brass could face up to twenty years in prison.
Two other cases, Kreig Youngwolfe and Anthony Kolbe, were scheduled for preliminary hearings, but Judge Schendt informed KCNI/KBBN that both defendants were intending to submit written waivers for their preliminary hearings and have the cases bound to Custer County District Court.
